Mason Rudolph Women’s Championship Results – Day One
On the youth of the Texas lineup: I’m thrilled with what I’m seeing. The thing that I love the most is the energy and work ethic that this lineup brings with it. They get after it all of the time. They push each other while also supporting being supportive of one another, and it creates a wonderful atmosphere. It’s a lot of fun to be around these young ladies from a coaching perspective.
